Naklada Naprijed, ''The Croatian Adriatic Tourist Guide'', pg. 258, Zagreb (1999), ISBN 953-178-097-8 In the beginning of 1199, Emeric was informed that Bishop Boleszlo of Vác had been conspiring with Duke Andrew against him; therefore he went to Vác and personally arrested the bishop on 10 March. Afterwards, he deprived his brother's partisans (''e.g.'' Palatine Mog) of their dignities. In the summer of 1199, in the Battle of Rád, Emeric would defeat his brother, who had to flee to Austria. The two brothers made peace with the mediation of the Papal Legate Gregory, and Duke Andrew was granted the government of Croatia and Dalmatia again.

romantic period

Romantic period, he is notable for his four dozen operettas. The worship of this god, however, survived in Slavic folklore for a long time after Christianization. Up until the 19th century in Russia, Belarus and Serbia, folk festivals called ''Jarilo'' were celebrated in late spring or early summer. These festivities were completely non-Christian in character, and even early researchers of Slavic mythology easily recognised in them relics of pagan ceremonies in honor of an eponymous spring deity. In Northern Croatia and Southern Slovenia, similar spring festivals were called ''Jurjevo'' or ''Zeleni Juraj'' or ''Zeleni Jurij'' (Green George); nominally, this was a festivity day of Christian St. George, but almost all elements of the celebrations were of pagan origin, and fairly similar to Jarilo festivals of other Slavic nations. Even the Slavic name ''Yury'', ''Jerzy'', ''Juraj'' or ''Jura'' is not as much a translation of Greek ''Georgios'' as a continuation of Slavic ''Jare'', ''Jarilo'' or ''Jarovit''

He subsequently became an academic, working as a lecturer in social psychology at the University of Oxford and then, from 1952 onwards, as professor of education and psychology at the then University College of the South-West of England, which shortly thereafter became the University of Exeter.

With Anne, Adam joined the Quakers while serving as a professor of education at the University of Ghana. In 1962 he set up the Harvard Center for Studies in Education and Development at Harvard University and in 1973 was chosen as the first professor of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford, England.

On the domestic political front in 1992, Đukanović became involved in a fierce political clash with the pro-Croatian Montenegrin artist and activist, Jevrem Brković, which resulted in Brković's exile to Croatia (until 1998). On this occasion Đukanović stated: ''Every smart Montenegrin and every honest man in this land mentions the name of the traitor Jevrem Brković with hatred, who in pure vanity betrayed his people and knowingly spreads anti-Yugoslav speeches across Zagreb, while the Ustašas, again like in 1941, bleed the defenseless Serbian civilians'' (referring to the World War II ethnic cleansing of Serbs in Croatia). *1941 to 1944 in Kosovo & Metohija, some 10,000 Serbs lost their lives, Krizman.

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.

The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.

Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
